This was an interesting place to visit in that you could see how delicately the thread saris, dresses etc were produced and the techniques used and you were given an A4 sheet with some information on which was good however we were not interactively shown around the workers and we couldn't really engage with them. The show room has a... More

Visited this place on our way to Ubud. Nothing special except that there's staff demonstrating how to weave the batik. it's interesting to look at for about 5 minutes. Went inside to look around but it's a tourist trap. everything is very costly and it's very dark inside the display area. However, if you wanna ensure that you are purchasing... More

We visited here as part of a tour and found it hard to fill the alloted 2 hours we had here. There were women demonstrating the art of batik which was very interesting to watch but not for any more than a few minutes! The shop had many beautiful pieced for sale but they were ridiculously overpriced. I'm glad we... More

Our driver/tour guide wanted us "just to look around" . We did. The employees outside were doing the dyeing and sewing. There was no picture taking allowed in the show room. The prices were high for me. The staff inside was not friendly. we did not stay long.

Our driver told us he wanted to stop at a few places along the way from Legian to Ubud. I rolled my eyes, knowing I would be paying more-than-Indonesian prices, but consented. This was the first stop, and I was glad we went. It was interesting watching the women making batik fabric and other crafts, and the store had absolutely... More

Since i grew up sewing with my mom I had a great interest and appreciation for what the women were doing....the colors and fabrics were beautiful. I knew I could get better prices on the street but the fabrics were flimsier in my opinion. I got caught up in shopping and forgot to go upstairs. ugh

One of the ten (10) tourist spots I visited during my Febris Bali Tour in Bali worth USD42. Women are doing hand scarves, clothes and bags. They open this village for tourists to see and buy their own hand made products. Prices ranged from USD$10 for souvenirs up to the most expensive USD50-USD100 scarves and clothes. Note: Here's my blog... More

We stopped to see how Batik was made and was quite impressed with the women that were painting the batik or weaving the material. The manufacturing area was outside once you got into the sales area, they would not let you take pictures. I found some of the designs to be very intricate and interesting. Upstairs they had material displayed... More

Although the batik was handmade and took a lot of effort I thought it was a little overpriced. Bought cushion covers at $50 ea and sarongs around $35. Nice but similar items at markets.

Great to see the process involved in how they make the clothing. The time spent making just one dress is amazing. Really well worth a look
